Young Fine Gael in UL to issue statement on legal threats

Wednesday, February 27th, 2008

Young Fine Gael in UL have told me they condemn the actions of those who harassed me and assured me the threat by a former member that Young Fine Gael in UL will sue me is untrue. I will post the statement here when it arrives.

Update: Also been chatting to the Students Union who are also waiting for this statement.

Statement from Young Fine Gael in UL:

As chairperson of ULYFG I would like to totally distance this society from the alleged harrassment of you. This has absolutely nothing to do with ULYFG and the three people which you named are not members ULYFG. We totally condem this abuse and I would again like to reiterate that ULYFG has nothing to do this matter. Also we have absolutely no intention threatening legal action either. I hope this clarifies the situation for you.

Yours Sincerly
Gillian Boyle.
Chairperson ULYFG.

On why Fine Gael as a party can go fuck themselves

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

There are two members of Fine Gael in UL who have been harassing me, stalking me and as a result damaging my health with their antics. Fine Gael and particularly Simon Coveney’s people have been contacting me about their broadband campaigning and seeking help and today they got told where they can go since their party is breeding these type of people. I am very fucking hostile to Fine Gael over this and that will not change.

It seems that two members in particular have nothing better to do with their time than stalk and harass me online. Whether it be suggesting they are going to get me done under incitement to hatred laws or whether it is emailing the Marian Finucane show and probably other shows and trying to stop them from having me on the air or going through the list of nominees at the Blog Awards and contacting them and telling them they are not entitled to be nominated. Any time anyone mentions me online it seems these people come along and leave comments about me or spinelessly infer things about me. One of them hasn’t got the balls to sign his own name. It’s gotten to the stage where I have had to mark my Twitter account as private as these two people are watching every word I type and logging it and using it to try and damage my character and cause further emotional stress. Completely excessive and obsessive. I no longer feel comfortable or safe being transparent about my work or my travel details because of these two people and I worry for my safety with this obsesssiveness.

But it’s not ending there. I will be seeking legal advice, I will be contacting the employer of one of them, I’ll be conacting UL and I will decide quite soon on whether to call the Gardai on this. Nobody should have to put up with this shit. I’m sure this blog post is giving them the attention they are desperately craving but it’s reality check for those that think blogging is all niceness and full of genuine people.

Note: If I’m contacted either via the comments here or privately by a member of FG in UL, I will consider that a furtherance to their attacks on me and I will in turn act accordingly.

Eamon Ryan v Shane Ross on Prime Time

Audio is out of synch with the video, sorry. Watch Ryan’s bodylanguage. Audio is good quality.

With thanks to James Gallagher, you’ll also notice he’s joined Fianna Fáil:

The Bertie letters on Newstalk

Tuesday, February 12th, 2008

Woah. Are you tuned into OppositionTalkNewstalk this lunchtime? They’ve got hold of all the correspondence between Bertie and the Mahon Tribunal where the Tribunal has pointed out all the times in the Dáil where our glorious leader contradicted his statements to the Mahon Tribunal. They even got in actors playing the solicitors on both sides. Gold. I hope this gets podcasted. The Mahon Tribunal had identified seven different areas of contradiction. Ouch. This is what he’s going to try and stop via his High Court action. These leaks while impressive and damning are getting a bit much and making the tribunal look like a sieve.

Lying Ryan – Eamon Ryan flat out lies on Morning Ireland about broadband

Monday, February 11th, 2008

Eamon Ryan, Minister for Communications, Energy, Natural Resources, fabulous hair, good skin and barefaced lies was on Morning Ireland talking about Internet safety but the topic will always get into broadband at some stage and it did. And he lied. A lot. Audio here.

In a conversation about Internet safety he says of Ireland:
At 1.19 in that we are Leading online shoppers in the world.

Then it turned to broadband at 3.30
On the National Broadband Scheme 4.20 Rolling out from June. National Broadband Scheme.
On the International Broadband Advisoy Forum, he says local users contribute too?: 5.00 You want to hear from International experts but secondly you want to hear from the main users
On broadband in general: 5.18 “We are actually leading the world in terms of wireless and mobile connections in broadband”
On Northern Ireland and broadband: 5.39 “In many instances I think we’re actually ahead”

Anyways, back to Internet Safety. The Minister bullshitted on that too and about secure websites. Er, mate, this is your own website from February 6th, when it was you know, hacked: Eamon Ryan website hacked

Video of Bertie Ahern not knowing where Cavan is

Saturday, February 9th, 2008

Leader of a Ireland not knowing that Cavan is in the Republic of Ireland, the country he “leads”. It’s only like one of 26 counties in the Republic Bertie.

SuperGorm – Chuck Norrising John Gormley?

Friday, February 1st, 2008

SoggyJazzBiscuit has another fun idea, blogging about John Gormley and John Gormley facts:

John Gormley doesn’t blog: he looks in the direction of the internet and it writes for him

In the main photo at the top of his blag, John Gormley is shown standing beside a river. What’s not obvious to the layman is that the river is diverting itself around Gormley out of respect.

Chuck Norris, Paul O’Connell, now John Gormley?

Maybe that’s why John wears sandals? *bigvoice* Sandals of steel. *bigvoice*(Environmentally friendly, carbon neutral, recycled, not tested on animals, organic steel) No shoes can take the punishment from SuperGorm, y’see. Thus the sandals.

Another fact: John, er SuperGorm has his SuperRothar because no ministerial car is needed as the road moves backward out of fear.

Anyone else able to summon up Gormley facts? I’m useless at this.

Dept of Environment logo

I do like the new Department of Environment logo though. Are they leeches used in homeopathic healing techniques or are they lentils?
